The Auditorium was a circular building, initially a concert & music hall. It opened by Svenska Bio as a cinema on 16th January 1914. In October 1942 it was re-named Vinterpalatset. Seating was provided for 913. On 4th September 1958 it was equipped with 3-strip Cinemiracle projection system and a multichannel stereophonic sound system. The size of the screen was around 20x8 meters. The opening film was the Cinemiracle production “Windjammer: The Voyage of the Christian Radichs”.
